I see that the unrepentant Stalin Apologist, Eric Hobsbawm has died.
Like many apologists for Communism of his era he later framed his support for the USSR as being anti-Nazi. This is of course twaddle as the Communist party of Germany was far more likely to collaborate with the Nazis than opponents on the democratic left and right.
An appalling man and an untrustworthy historian.
